My FR691v-as07-R toro timecutter's battery discharges while running. Replaced the Battery, voltage Reg and Diode, still discharges.

It sounds like a job for a volt/ohm meter.

I am not familiar with the model but the basic principles are fairly consistent.
Either there is something causing the battery to discharge at a greater rate than the generator can recharge it or more likely the generator simply isn't working or isn't working efficiently.

In order to charge a battery the generator must provide a higher voltage than the battery or current will not flow. Assuming a 12 volt system the voltage of a fully charged and healthy battery is 13.2 volts. The generator must provide a higher voltage and typically would be around 14.5 volts for solid-state or electronic systems and 15.5 volts for electro-mechanical systems.
Scale the voltages up or down for 6 volt or 18 volt or 24 volt systems...

Isolate the battery from any battery-supplied accessories and then with the engine running fairly fast check the voltage across the battery. If only the battery voltage is present it indicates a generator problem.

As well as providing a higher-than-battery voltage the generator and all the associated wiring and connectors must be able to provide the current flow. In the case of problems it is best to go back to basics and carry out a visual check of all the wiring and connections and check the continuity and insulation of the generator windings and wiring, rectifier diodes, brush gear if there is any fitted and earth connections if it is an earth return type system. It is a good idea to use a wiring diagram for reference.

If the generator is a permanent magnet type there have been rare occurrences where a generator has become inefficient due to a loss of magnetism. I repeat this is a rare occurrence and the fault probably lies elsewhere and a systematic approach and reference to a wiring diagram will usually isolate the fault.

Good luck!

Toro 42" Kohler engine back fires once after use/shut down. filters, plug are new

Backfire is normal if the fuel mixture is too lean, check the color of the plugs, they should be biscuit brown / tan. If they are grey, it is too lean and can cause valve over heating. Also the timing maybe off

My toro lawn mower is hard to start in cold weather. (40 to 50 degrees), I have an auto-choke. mower was bought in spring of 2010.

This is covered by the Warranty. Take it to a local dealer like and have the thermostat replaced.
The first generation thermostats are known for sticking.

Good luck
